No matter where I am, whether it’s the elevator, the gym, the mall, I’ve noticed that we have an addiction and it’s not pretty.  BlackBerry, Android, iPhone, it doesn’t matter, they are everywhere! So since we can’t rid ourselves of our addiction, we might as well find a way to embrace it.

 

With each new year we always pledge to exercise more, eat better and lose those unwanted 15-20 lbs. by swimsuit season. With the combination our technology addiction and the need to be healthy, I wanted to pass along the top 9 mobile apps for the fitness and health conscious Jersey Girl. Use these to better your life, encourage yourself, and reach your goals.
